Walt Disney cartoons became a mass consumer product. The importance of Walt Disney in the history of animation can hardly go unnoticed. He pioneered the use of many technological innovations in animated films, such as sound, color or multiplane camera, and within twelve years (between 1928 and 1940), succeeded in turning the formerly underrated cartoons in a sophisticated means of artistic expression.
At present, the small animation studio that in 1923 Walt and Roy Disney founded has become one of the largest companies in the entertainment field, with annual revenues of 30,000 million dollars. The Walt Disney Company theme parks managed eighteen, thirty-nine hotels, eight motion picture studios, eleven cable television channels and one terrestrial (ABC).
